Choosing the Right Sanitation-Disinfection Service [2023] Guide

Last Updated on September 18, 2023

Ensuring that your business is providing all its employees and visitors with safe and hygienic facilities is of paramount importance. Especially since the covid-19 pandemic and as businesses start to open back up and demand increases, a safe facility not only shows you are prioritizing the health of all those who come and go but it also gives people confidence that it is indeed safe to return to workplaces and other public settings.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Hygiene in the Spotlight: Post-COVID, the emphasis on hygiene has skyrocketed. A safe and sanitized facility isn’t just a need; it’s a business imperative.
  2. Beyond Regular Cleaning: While daily cleaning keeps your space tidy, professional disinfection targets harmful bacteria and viruses, ensuring a deeper level of cleanliness.
  3. The Power of Electrostatic Spraying: Advanced technologies like electrostatic spraying ensure 360-degree coverage, even in hard-to-reach areas.
  4. SaniShield vs. SaniZone vs. SaniGuard: Different disinfection services cater to varied needs. Whether it’s surface protection, air treatment, or targeted washroom disinfection, there’s a solution for every business.
  5. The Citron Advantage: With a range of services, Citron Hygiene offers tailored solutions, ensuring your facility remains a beacon of safety and cleanliness.

Regular cleaning schedules are great for any business to practice, however standard cleaning measures are not always adequate when used on their own. To ensure bacteria and germs that can live on surfaces for long periods of time are removed off those surfaces and equipment fully, investing in professional disinfection to provide an additional layer of protection may be required.

Tips for Choosing the Right Disinfection Company

Why Choose Professional Disinfection?

By utilizing professional disinfection for your facilities, you can create a much more efficient and happier workforce. Many employees or visitors may have anxieties around being in a particular workplace or setting, which can reduce productivity, motivation, purchasing intent and much more, meaning that creating a safe environment should be one of your highest priorities.

As customers and employees use workplaces and public facilities, with increased mixing and contact with others, the risk of spreading potentially harmful bacteria and germs may also increase. Due to the sheer numbers of objects and surfaces people interact with and share on a daily basis, the possibility for cross-contamination is incredibly high, which means that the chances of illness spreading amongst your workforce and visitors is elevated. This can lead customers forming negative perceptions and associations about your business and facilities, and your staff requiring sick days at your expense.

For this reason, using a professional disinfection solution can provide reassurance to those who come and go that you take hygiene seriously while showing that you care about their wellbeing and the wider community.
